REL wonders if we’ll make the play-offs!

Plenty going on this Saturday
Saturday sees the last home game of the league season at Eugene Cross Park, and a number of special events are taking place throughout the day.

The players have organised a fundraising day to support Rhys Thomas, the club doctor and surgeon, and his Cancer Charity. Rhys is currently undergoing chemotherapy and has been writing about his lymphoma treatment on the blog

Before the game, Boots will be in the club with special offers on make-up, fragrances and free gifts. They are also providing two hampers, full of goodies, which will be raffled during the day. All funds raised will go to the Cancer Charity.

After the match, some of the players will also be raising money for the charity by having their hair shaved off in the main bar. All money raised from the Addicts after-match raffle will also be donated to the cause.

At 12.45pm, RTB Steelers U11s will play against Blackwood U11s on ECP as a curtain raiser to the Ebbw Vale v Bedwas game. They will also have a short exhibition match during the half time interval.

Appearing at the rugby club in the night will be the band Ninth Gate. The band, which includes lead singer Tom Hollister, previously of the Tom Hollister Trio, and guitarist Chris Buck, who is well known at the club for being in the band Buck and Evans and previously the Tom Hollister Trio, as well as performing with legendary Guns n Roses guitarist Slash, will be playing a set of rock classics at the final home game of the league season.

Come and spend an evening at ECP!

Summer International tickets
Wales are playing 2 matches in the Millennium Stadium in the Dove summer series and these will double up as World Cup warm up games. These matches are:

Wales v Ireland 8th August 2015 kick off 2:30pm
Wales v Italy     5th September 2015  kick off 5pm

If you would like to order tickets for either or both of these matches please send in your request by 13th April 2015. Please be aware that due to the WRU deadline for accepting orders from clubs we will be unable to deal with requests received after 13th April.

Requests can be sent by sending an email to this address, stating your preferences, or in writing to the clubhouse, marking the envelope as 'International ticket request'.

Match day car parking
Club Chairman, Jon Jones, had a meeting with Nick Smith MP recently. Nick commented that, in his joint meetings with police and community, the rugby club had received a 'dishonourable mention’ in relation to match day parking on Newchurch Road, and Kingfield - all on double yellow lines. This is causing issues for residents and concern that emergency vehicles would struggle on access to Kingfield.

Here is a plan showing car parks within easy walking distance of the ground; there is further parking on Coleg Gwent campus. Ebbw Vale RFC would urge all supporters to park considerately.

Sponsorship Opportunities
Local businesses (or individuals), you can sponsor just about anything, from a whole match to the grandstand, from your favourite player to the new terrace canopy! If you'd like to know how, please have a look at this.
